Barrot Lambdin, PhD, MPH
Director of Implementation Science
Dr. Barrot Lambdin is Director of Implementation Science at Pangaea Global AIDS Foundation, and is an Affiliate Assistant Professor within the Department of Global Health at the University of Washington.
Barrot received his PhD in Epidemiology from the University of Washington where his research supported and strengthened health systems to more efficiently deliver programs in resource-limited settings. Much of his work has focused on identifying bottlenecks and solutions to the implementation of proven interventions for HIV prevention and treatment. He has been involved in initiatives looking at the impact of integrating HIV services into primary health care, health workforce shortages, mapping patient flow through facilities and strengthening management to support health system integration in Mozambique.
Barrot leads efforts to design and implement rigorous operations and implementation research activities for Pangaea and is currently leading initiatives with several programs, including: methadone and accompanying risk reduction services for people who inject drugs in Tanzania, scale-up of HIV testing and linkage to integrated HIV care and treatment for men who have sex with men in China and the publically funded HIV testing program in Alameda County, California.
In an effort to build the capacities of future global health leaders and ministries of health, Barrot has conducted trainings in operations and implementation research methodologies at the University of Washington (Seattle, WA), University of Eduardo Mondlane (Maputo, Mozambique), Cayetano University (Lima, Peru) and Stanford University (Palo Alto, CA). He will next hold an operations and implementation research course for program managers and researchers at a methadone and needle/syringe exchange program in Mauritius.
